Why We Smile.
We smile because Houston is
hot. According f- his view, no
other editor has a right to publish
a paper in Kootenay without first
obtaining his content in writing, a
formality which we entirely neglected. His first reference to the
Prospkcioh, a year and n haif ago,
was in his usual churlish maimer.
He has treated it in tne same wuy
ever since. Its success worr.es
him. Its rapidly increasing circu-.
onion and growing popularity excites his envy, ihe more so when he
contempliiles the diminished and
dwindling list of the Tribune. Recently two of his most valued contributors have deserted him and
are writing for the columns of the
Prospector. He couldn't stand
that without squealing,
Here is his latest squeal.. W()
quote it so that all may have an
opportunity to see it. It is t u
rare a note or gem to be left in the
unfathonied obscurity of the Tribune, besides, it's an advertisement
for our forthcoming special edition
for which Mr. Kemp is preparing
the copy;
Randall II. Ktmp will hereafter
be connected with the Sl/iQAN
Prospector, If he were substituted for the present editor of ihe
PuospKCToit it would be a substitution of brains for belly.
Evidently lean and hungry Cas-
sius Houston, tit only for "treason,
strategy and spoils," is hot. That
is why we smile,

Spokane has turned another red-
handed murderer loose. The jurors
nre said to have had wine suppers
after the verdict and to have had
the bad taste of having themselves
photographed in a group with the
murderer in the center. The members of that jury should be blacklisted and shunned by decent people. .
If there is a crime worse than
murder, it is that of kidnaping
children. What parent wou'd not
rather follow his or her child to
a grave, than to have it suddenly
"disappear, kidnaped by villians
'and subject to all the cruelty and
infamy that villians may choose to
heap upon it, and never again to
be seen or heard of by its parents
or friends?
This terrible crime is on the increase. In San Francisco alone
'over twenty little girls, ranging in
age from 4 to 14 yeiirs, have suddenly and mysteriously disappeared during 1894 liiid ho clue to

the bill being bo simple that he nature designed Us to be.���Van-
who runs may read. It authorizes couver World;
the Province to borrow ��420,000
in the form of inscribed stock:
This method of borrowing is, as
all members Well know, one that
places oUr loans in the first position in the best markets of the
world and enables us to get money
at the very lowest rate of interest
and at the least expense. The provisions of the bill tire almost ex:
actly the same as those of the 1891
Loan act, which was the first one
under the inscribed stock plan. The
necessity of raising the money being well known, he thought anyone who considers the situation dispassionately and fairly will feel
that in asking for this sum the
Government is not in any way exceeding what the assets of the Province can fairly stand;

The last balance sheet show!
that the total liabilities of the Province, including all debts, in excess
of the assets, were then about
$2 400.00 \ but in reality as before
stated, we have not fully valued
otjr assets, though we did not knoW
why tliifc $29,000 a year shou d be
valued as an asset while the $218,

From Mr. Donald Graham, M.P.
P. for this riding, we leitrn that
there is little likelihood that the
present size of mineral claims will
be reduced by the Legislature, both
Messrs Kellie and baker being
Btrongly opposed to the idea. The
committee on mining, however, approved of the fight to all timber on
the surface being granted to claim-
holders, and appeared also to be
Willing to return to the recording
law of 1891 as to the number i
claims which can be legally he'd
in the same district. The legislature will, of course, have to approve
of the | reposed amendments to the
act, but the recommendations of
the committee are practically certain to be carried.

blessed tariff system comes to theii
relief. A fat steer is worth $10.00
'on the reservation and $r>6iOQ just
across the line among the mint's.
It's a long line anil can be en ssen
almost anywhere. Further explanation is unnecessary.
"Nobody cares much about tht
'captain's order," said a Stevens
county man today, "at least si
long as only the, native police an
directed to enforce it: One dollai

gloriously drunk he couldn't see a
regiment of sooners. Even if tin
soldiers come to drive out tin

while ago ami 1* ni.w doing ten

"Of course there's another alternative���marrying a Squaw���but
most of the hoy* don't take  kindh
to that plan, and some who might
can't find ii decent sjuaw wli
wants' to take them up. So I don'i
think the order will cause any
heavy boom in hiatrihn.ny yei
There is plenty of trouble with
these international marriiin.ee as it
is. Of couive the half breeds anon the reservation in full force.
Until the order was issued granting
each Indian eighty acres of reservation land, many of the squaw
men were living in Stevens county
���some even holding office and exercising all the rights of citizens.
That order caused a rush to the
reserve. Now, much complaint is
made that these "squaw men" have
picked out all the best eighty acre
meadows for their half breed children, and when the land is opened
the white settlers will have to take
what is left.
The opinion of Secretary Hoke
Smith, published in Tuesday's
Chronicle, hits caused ho little debate. The secretary held that
membership in. an Indian tribe
may be established by the laws and
usages thereof in spite of the general rule that among free people
tjhe child of married parents follows
the condition of its frither;'
. Now the question is, where does
that leave the half breeds? Are
���{here an# "laws and usages" which
make them members of the Colville tribe? If so, each will have
eighty acres. Or do they "follow
the condition of their fathers," and
have to take their chances with
other white men on the islands?
But the latest sensation along
the border is the attempt of the
Indians to collect fees for pasturage. The settlers on the British
side of the line own cattle and
cayuses, which with true Canadian
instincts like to "tray to greener[?]
pastures on the Yankee side. Thai
was all right until a short time ag<
when the old chief appeared ujitu
the scene and rounded up about
100 head of straying cayuses, am
demanded pay for their pasturage.
"He got two of my colts," said i
man from Midway last evening,
"and wanted a dollar or two apiece
for the grass they had eaten. Did
I pay? Guess not. I took my
other 'Colt' and went over the line
after them���and the chief didn't
say 'boo.'"
Altogether, the people- on the
reservation are having plenty of
fun this winter.���Spokane Chronicle.
